5 MEDITATIONS ON DEATH

5-channel movie installation

Nothing is more real than death. Nothing is more of an \"absolute imaginary\" than death. This is reality! A reality that reveals itself in the unusual video installation FIVE MEDITATIONS ON DEATH by Nico Weber from NOW COLLECTIVE. Images of a clinical autopsy of an anonymous dead body are composed as a poetic, five chapter narrative – disturbing and tender at the same time. It is an artistic and very personal examination of the filmmaker and artist Nico Weber in creative collaboration with cinematographer and editor Marc Nordbruch with the unthinkable, with what concerns us all: the incomprehensible. FIVE MEDITATIONS ON DEATH explores our social relationship to death, which is more evident in the practical handling of a corpse than in abstract representations of the theme.
